KEF’s award-winning original KEF KHT2005 and KHT3005 ‘egg’ system revolutionised home entertainment with its supremely accurate 3D sound from distinctive small speakers packed with unique technologies. Redesigned to take advantage of design innovations developed for KEF’s most sophisticated audiophile speakers, the all-new E305 system raises the bar even further – at a surprisingly affordable price. Available in deep black or pure white, the silky matt finish is complemented by satin chrome cast aluminium bases that simply rotate to form wall brackets. Beautifully engineered bespoke stands are also available to help positioning around the listening environment.7000 series models are full range speakers with higher than normal power capability and can therefore be used without a subwoofer. This makes them the ideal choice when there is a requirement for a small discreet speaker and where a subwoofer cannot be accommodated.
Everything about the new E305 system is designed to make life easier and more pleasurable. It’s simple to hook up to any AV receiver which also controls the output level of the subwoofer. With no special tools or skills required, you’ll set up your system for optimum performance in no time.
Whether it’s on the desk, on wall or floor stands, set-up couldn’t be simpler. The stands are available as an optional extra.
New 4.25 inch Uni-Q driver array
The secret of the E305 system’s outstanding hi-fi response lies in the latest iteration of KEF's signature Uni-Q driver array, originally developed for the multiple award-winning Q Series. With its famously wide dispersion characteristics and sonic purity, this technology is what gives the system its extraordinarily natural sound quality.
The tweeter at the centre of the midrange cone is vented to prevent distortion-inducing high pressure from building up behind the dome, so the response in the critical vocal region remains intricately detailed with every nuance of the original recording. With KEF’s ‘tangerine’ waveguide, it encourages the sound to radiate evenly, increasing both the dispersion and sensitivity of the tweeter for a more natural performance throughout the listening area.
Uni-Q MF/LF driver
Being stiffer than conventional materials, the aluminium midrange cone operates rigidly over the entire vocal range for the smooth, clear midrange response that reproduces the human voice with stunning accuracy. Together with KEF’s Z-flex cone surround it allows the cone full excursion while providing a smooth, uninterrupted surface over which the tweeter output passes with no disturbance or diffraction effects. Its undercut magnet designed driver motor, which usually is only found in high end speakers, reduces midrange distortion by generating a very symmetrical magnetic field, resulting transparency helps to create the feeling of ‘being there’.
